Qualified Industries Engineering
Governments and public funding agencies recognize that engineering is a science, with the same status as chemistry, biology and physics. However, many engineering companies do not realize that they engage in R&D activities on a daily basis. Typically, engineers encounter complex problems, evaluate various solutions, and resolve these problems through an iterative process. There is funding available to support this process.
Companies who provides civil, structural or aeronautical engineering services, usually realize activities eligible for tax credits or subsidies such as :
